Gardening Makes Children Happy

A recent Royal Horticultural Society study that suggests gardening makes children feel happy and teaches them valuable new skills.

The comprehensive new survey of 1,300 teachers and 10 schools across the country, commissioned by the RHS, reveals that children in schools which encouraged gardening became more resilient, confident and lived healthier lives.

The report’s findings all go to show that gardening should be used as a key teaching tool, rather than as an extra-curricular activity.
